The Arkansas Arts Center, the state’s premiere center for visual and performing arts, Statewide ArtsReach Programs presents a traveling exhibition of artwork from the 56th Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition. A representation of the creative efforts of young Arkansas artists in grades K – 12 will be exhibited during the month of January at the Bradley County Historical Museum located on Ash Street in Warren.
Young Arkansas Artists on Tour features a selection of works from the 56th Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition at the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock. The annual exhibition is organized by the Arkansas Arts Center with the cooperation of the Arkansas Department of Education. Teachers from 124 schools across the state submitted 495 artworks for consideration. A panel of art professionals selected the top eight works per grade which were exhibited at the Arkansas Arts Center May 16 – July 23, 2017.
Dolores Justus, owner of Justus Fine Art Gallery in Hot Springs, Arkansas, selected the awards for the exhibition. She selected one “Best of Class” and two “Honorable Mention” awards for each grade level. Monetary awards, funded by Arkansas Children’s Hospital and Mid-Southern Watercolorists, were given to support each winner’s arts program.
